Delays in hospital admission and investigation in acute stroke

An authors' error occurred in the figure illustrating this short report by Neil E Anderson, Joanna B Broad, and Ruth Bonita (15 July, p 162). The median time to delay for intracerebral haemorrhage should be 14 hours, not seven as shown, and the median delay for cerebral ischaemia was as high as 66 hours (not 48 hours). The text gives the correct values.

An editorial error occurred in this short report by John A James and colleagues (22 July, p 230). In the table the risk of anaemia at 2 years of age in children who were anaemic at 14 months (fourth row) should have read 30% (13/43) [not 30% (30/43)].
